The pros: Trader Joe's Black Bean and Jack Cheese Burrito is a really tasty, cheese is melty after 90 seconds in the microwave, quick meal on the go.
The cons: It's 40% or more of your daily value of sodium, saturated fat and fiber (bad if you are not used to this much fiber)
The verdict: For $2.99 this is a perennial favorite in my household for when you need a quick lunch to go or a lazy dinner. It's both tasty and filling and ready from your microwave (although I've eaten it cold before too) in 90 seconds.

What it looks like on the inside:
Completely tasty, lots of fiber but lots of things that aren't too good for you too. When you are busy or on the go a lot, sometimes you have to let certain things go in order to have a quick meal. Besides, you didn't think all that cheese was good for you, did you? But it does make it taste so very awesome.
